Take Trauma Treatment to a New Level of Clinical Effectiveness

Six Dynamic Interviews with the Leading Innovators in Trauma Treatment
When Talk Isn't Enough:
Mobilizing the Power of Embodied Awareness
Bessel van der Kolk, MD
Learn about new approaches that go beyond traditional talk therapy to provide traumatized clients a deeper, more lasting experience of healing. They include:
  • Techniques for bringing the brain "online" so it's more fully present in the therapy room
  • Understanding the limitations of exposure therapy with its emphasis on desensitization to pain and exploring alternative methods that encourage a fuller mind/body integration
  • How to make the most of your own healing presence through attention to breathing, posture, and mirroring your clients' words and expressions
  • An overview of emerging tools and research that promise new possibilities for healing from complex trauma
Promoting Post-Traumatic Growth:
From Devastation to Hope
Lisa Ferentz, LCSW-C
Discover how to guide traumatized clients to embrace healing in ways that allow growth to emerge from adversity and suffering. Learn how to:
  • Plant the seeds of new meaning, increased self-compassion, and connection with others after the experience of trauma
  • Help clients tap into their deepest inner wisdom by reinforcing personal strengths and accessing remembered resources
  • Integrate writing exercises, drawing, role-play, guided imagery, and the creative arts to enrich the therapy experience
  • Guide clients through the key transition points in the process of post-traumatic growth
The Challenge of Complex Trauma:
Embracing the Disowned Self
Richard Schwartz, PhD
Watch an extraordinary clinical video illustrating a step-by-step approach with a client affected by complex trauma. It shows how you can use Internal Family Systems strategies to help traumatized clients integrate their conflicted inner parts. You'll also learn how to:
  • Connect clients with the calm, compassionate core Self that's the source of inner leadership
  • Help clients communicate with disowned and disliked parts of themselves
  • Avoid becoming the primary attachment figure and, instead, open the way for the client's own Self to emerge
  • Use methods for transparently handling situations in which therapists commonly get emotionally triggered
Healing from the Bottom Up:
Resource States in Trauma Work
Peter Levine, PhD
Explore how to use your clients' natural instincts to heal and rebalance their physiology from the pioneer of Somatic Experiencing. Learn how to:
  • Help clients access safety and positive resource states instead of repeatedly experiencing threats that no longer exist
  • Master the SIBAM model for systematically observing clients' nonverbal responses
  • Guide clients in "riding the waves" of their sensations as they exit from their immobility response and experience release from their original trauma
  • Titrate your interventions to maximize your impact and avoid retraumatizing vulnerable clients
Include Families in Trauma Treatment for Maximum Effectiveness
Mary Jo Barrett, MSW
Examine alternatives to one-to-one treatment approaches, such as including family members of trauma clients in the therapy process. Learn:
  • How to build a strong alliance through a 3-stage collaborative model of trauma treatment that emphasizes the importance of safety
  • Techniques for using enactments to change negative feedback patterns in your clients' daily lives
  • Approaches to teaching skills to clients and their families that increase the transfer of learning from the consultation room to everyday life
  • Strategies for resolving conflicts and reinforcing positive experiences within couples and families
Trauma Therapy in Perspective:
Lessons from the Past 25 Years
Janina Fisher, PhD
Explore the history of trauma treatment, including the field's shift from a focus on experiencing the pain of the past to drawing on a client's strengths, resilience, and resources to build a fuller life in the present. Learn about:
  • The limitations of exposure therapy and alternative strategies for bolstering cognitive, emotional, physical, and behavioural resilience
  • How to help clients develop a more empowering and coherent trauma narrative
  • The contribution that brain science, somatic therapy, mindfulness, and the practice of "dual awareness" can make to trauma recovery
  • Practical methods for heightening right-brain-to-right-brain communication in therapy
